Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Weepinbell from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card set. Weepinbell is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Weepinbell does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Vine Whip, this move requires two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, and does 20 damage. Weepinbell's second move is called Spit Poison, this move requires three energy cards to use, and does 40 damage to the defending Pokemon plus poisons it.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Weepinbell is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Bellsprout into play (I reviewed Bellsprout from this set yesterday) and then evolve Bellsprout into Weepinbell. Weepinbell does have a stage 2 evolution in Victreebel that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Weepinbell is the final evolution in this line. So if you read yesterday's review of Bellsprout, you'll know that I thought that card was an average Basic Pokemon card and one that could be used on its own in a deck because it had one move that did 10 damage and the move I really liked on the card would allow you to discard on of your opponent's cards in their hand. But that card had a little lower HP, so you wouldn't want to use more than 1 of them in a deck. So knowing this about Bellsprout and looking at this Weepinbell card, I would not use the combination of Bellsprout and Weepinbell without Victreebel, I say this because both of Weepinbell's moves are below average and just like Bellsprout, Weepinbell has a low HP. But if you really like this grass line, I would say to use no more than a 1-1 line of each Pokemon, again I would suggest getting Bellsprout into the active Pokemon early in the game to use Knock Off and ruin your opponent's deck, then after that evolve Bellsprout into Weepinbell and use Spit Poison when you can.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set. Unfortunately this card is just below average overall in my opinion, since it has a low HP, and two moves that both do little damage for the amount of energy cards it requires. But this card's moves aren't that slow, it does have two moves, and both of the moves it has require some colorless energy cards so this card isn't all bad, together with Bellsprout from this set I would give it a 2 out of 5 rating, individually I gave Bellsprout a 3 and Weepinbell a 2.
